The ReachWell app connects families with their community, schools, districts, teachers, and programs

Family engagement increases student achievement. Schools struggle to effectively reach millions of families due to income challenges, language & literacy barriers, and busy family schedules. Meanwhile, nearly all families have access to apps through smartphones, tablets, and mobile devices. ReachWell reaches families, drives responses, builds community, and simplifies communication and office tasks. With just a tap, families can be instantly connected with their school, district, groups, teachers, and services without email addresses, phone numbers, and complex passwords. This article details some of the key advantages, features, and functionality of the ReachWell app!

  • Rapid Adoption & High Usage: Quickly reach families through a customized launch program and viral sharing. Simple tools and comprehensive resources save schools and families time and money.
  • Relevant and Translated: Communications and content are tailored to families, and customized for schools and organizations. Messages and updates are translated to your families’ preferred languages in the ReachWell app, and even support preliterate families.
  • Automation and Integration: Maintain fresh content without updating multiple websites or programs. Our app integrates with familiar tools like Google, Schoology, and Outlook. App updates sync with your social media sites saving time while expanding your community reach.

How does translation work with ReachWell?

The ReachWell translation engine supports both automated and manual translation. Staff members send messages in English, and app notifications are translated based on the preferred languages selected by contacts via their app. ReachWell leverages the Google translation engine. As the Google translate engine continues to evolve in effectiveness and accuracy, we have found this translation method works great for brief messages.

Contacts download the ReachWell app and choose their preferred language (from 103 languages). All future messages they receive from you are instantly translated into their selected language. ReachWell does its best to store all translated information in order to support historical translation for families who may be added to a group or organization at some point in the future. For example:
  1. If a family member chooses Arabic as their preferred language in April, but no other family from that organization had previously selected Arabic, then only future messages will be delivered in Arabic, and messages prior to that will be viewable in English.
  2. However, if a second family joins the same group later in the year and selects Arabic, then historical messages delivered before April will be in English, and all messages after will be in Arabic.
